Prolonged dental caries is more difficult to treat, the patient has to make multiple appointments, the treatment process takes longer instead of a single appointment where a tiny area of decay is detected.
If the small stain of caries is notreated, it‘s only a matter of time when it penetrates the solid tissues of the tooth and gives way to infection via root canals.
If one allows caries to spread deeper into the tooth, a longer and more complex treatment awaits.
Delayed dental treatment is more expensive that timely treatment or prevention
Besides the unwanted consequences of delayed dental treatment there is also the question of medical expenses.
Understandably, the later one starts treatment, the more complex, longer and more expensive the treatment will be.
